Lapuan Kankurit teamed up with illustrator Teemu Järvi to create the lovely tea towel. Made from a blend of linen and organic cotton, white and black threads give the appearance of different grey tones for stunning texture and dimension. It's a wonderful gift for the holidays, as it can be used to wrap another gift like a bottle of wine or homemade loaf of bread. It can be loved and used for drying hands and dishes year round, though. In Finland, reindeer (Poro) aren't just meaningful during the holiday season. With the number of reindeer in Finland roughly equal to the number of people living there, it's become somewhat of a Lapland icon.
Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.

Ordered this for Christmas gift for our daughter who works as a chef. Once we got the apron, we decided she can NOT wear it to work, but will have to use it at home or parties only. WAY too nice to mess up at work. The weave is even, and the reindeer truly is woven in the pattern. We wondered if it was printed on the woven apron, but it is definitely woven into the pattern. Just beautiful!
